A manhole fire around 5:30 p.m. at Mt. Vernon and Walnut streets means a shutdown of the intersection for about 90 minutes as firefighters douse the flames and Eversource repairs the damage.
Mt. Vernon Street
A stabbing at a benefit for an injured motorcyclist at the Boston Teachers Union Hall in August remains unsolved because every person inside the hall interviewed by police either said they saw nothing or refused to talk, a BPD detective says.
Sgt. Det. Kenneth O'Brien told the Boston Licensing Board yesterday that even the victim told police he saw nothing early on Aug. 3, only that "he was walking around the hall when he felt a pop on his left side" and then looked down to see blood. The board held a hearing to determine whether the hall, at 180 Mt. Vernon St., could have done anything to prevent the stabbing.
